Abstract

Morphological anomalies of the gallbladder are rare and are characterized by a large variety of configurations depending on the size and degree of fusion of the lobes, and on the number and position of the cystic ducts. We presented a case of bilobed gallbladder incidentally determinated during abdominal ultrasonography. Oral cholecystography and computed tomographic examination after oral cholecystography (Oral Cholecysto-CT) were performed to confirm this abnormality. This is a quite rare anomaly consisted of complete duplication of the fundus and partially duplication of the corpus and separated lobes both of which entered a single infundibulum and cystic duct.
